It took us over 8 months to complete, but this blanket is finally finished! For those of you looking for the written pattern, I’ll spare you the blog post and let you know there isn’t one. I don’t intend to turn this into a written pattern, but you can watch the tutorial series for free on YouTube (link below).

If you have questions, you can always email me:

It might take me two or three days to get back to you, but I won’t leave you hanging 🙂

For the yarn, I used Caron Simply Soft in seven different colors in gem tones. I ran out of two colors and made do with the remaining colors (mostly because I was too lazy to drive around Sarasota looking for more yarn). If you’re looking to make one yourself, I advise you to use a tight tension in your stitching and don’t leave too long a tail end in order to economize on yarn. Get two or three skeins in the color you want for your square borders, as I ran out with 10 squares remaining. The blue yarn I used to stitch the squares together was a last-minute add from my leftover stash from another projects. It ended up saving me a trip to the store, and I love the way the blanket turned out, but the intention was to make the borders and joining seams in the dark charcoal color.

Yarn Breakdown:

Caron Simply Soft
1 skein in each color you want for your 30 squares (I used 5 different colors here)
2-3 skeins in the border color (I had only 1 skein in charcoal, which was enough to add borders to 20 squares)

Hook: 6mm Tunisian

Other than that, you’ll need a yarn needle and some scissors.
